to be in spain and soon to be in singapore. what that gets you is that gets you ships that are forward. numbers of ships are important. numbers of ships forward are of most importance. >> reducing transit time for example. >> precisely. you get the presence of a ship forward a factor of .8, maybe 20% maintenance, refresh, refuel, things of that nature. if you have to come from the west coast or east coast, i need four ships to keep one forward. one is there. one just came back. one is on its way or getting ready and one is in deep maintenance so you see the leverage. >> being forward, present and engaging has been things the navy has been delivering for more than 200 years but you said the navy would have to focus much more on war fighting and less on engagement. the new age strategy remains, for example, to engage and to be forward, to cooperate with allies over that vast region. critics say your drive for more combat foe qus is at odds with -- focus is at odds with that. is it and what is your strategy? >> i don't think it's at odds at all. in the end the first thing we need to do and what we

[inaudible] then a few months later so a little more discipline and a little more money. they said the vote provide the my a plan. but behind all of this side believe there is the enormous sense of commitment probably just in the part of the republic. i almost cannot imagine. and what would happen under this situation in? but with the conviction we've tried hour best but traditionally you cannot kick them while they are down. and a stand but the problem with the european union fed is monetary union's as opposed to the fiscal union. they benefited from the low interest-rate and that meant they allow the
zone, including spain, germany, france. yet, the united states of america is able to borrow at the lowest rate in pretty much its whole recorded history. so you have a very, very diverse landscape at the moment, but certainly one that could be significantly improved, or worsened by the situation that we have concerning the fiscal cliff, the fiscal deficit and the debt of the country, which are three topics that can be addressed now on the comprehensive and efficient fashion. >> in the fiscal cliff negotiation. so what should this mean? because i think i could interpret any given number to say, oh, that means we shouldn't touch taxes for the upper brackets because the economy still needs as much money as it can have in it. or i could argue, oh, this means that we need more stimulus to keep the jobs going, or i could look at the debt and say, oh, this means we need to cut spending. so what does it mean? so what would you, and what globally, what would mean the most for the u.s. to do in terms of the global economy? >> you know, what you said, you would qualify as an economist.

that slavery was less expensive than these new forms? brazil, u.s., britain, france, spain. >> a very interesting question. i think my first response would be to say i'm not sure so much that all forms of slavery disappeared as so much evolved in transition. obviously, there were laws passed that made a certain thing illegal. from a paper law stand point certain things disappeared. but the case of bonded labor it showed that things did not disappear but adapt to a different set of laws and climate. then evolved around those hurdles to continue to effect the same kind of mode of exi ployation. as to whether f there was a point in the past where producers were faced with a scenario where one set of nonslave-like labor bake more economic efficient there are certainly few instances. i think the historians here would probably have those more in their head than i do. particularly in case where is laws with penalties were perceived to be enforced. then the perception is that form of exploitation is no longer beneficial. we either have to evade it and try to do something similar or adopt for
